Hello everyone! I wanted to let you know that I have started the October social challenge! Where I will be posting little tidbits about my self throughout October!
Mostly on my instagram here https://www.instagram.com/joanneseale and facebook page here https://www.facebook.com/joannesealeart/
but I will also copy the posts and content to my blog and website here http://www.joanneseale.com/
Yesterday I posted this photo and insight
I hate having my photo taken but here are some rare photos of me through the ages. Some things about me that you may not know… umm 😐 I have a degree in Environmental Biology, I’ve made things all my life including making my own clothes and toys as a child and teenager, I was one of the first VJ’s to be highlighted in the national press as part of the pioneering Yeast Collective, I sang ‘I will survive’ with Gloria Gaynor!! That’s it for now! Hopefully I will post more tidbits for the rest of October
Today I posted this little video showing you how to turn my Nubian mask design into a greetings card!!
Stay tuned for more little updates throughout the month of October!!!
Hello everyone! I hope you are well? I am doing good and looking forward to creating lots of new juicy arts and crafts for you!
Today I would like to show you my latest ‘Curvy Girl’ arts and quotes painting.
She is an expression of how it is good to take possession of our self and how the most important real estate we can invest in is ourselves.
‘Be the Queen of you’ means taking full responsibility for our lives and being held accountable to ourselves.
I painted her with what some might say are ‘thicc’ thighs as an expression and statement of body positivity and acceptance.
I can imagine that growing up many women with large thighs may have been called ‘thunder thighs’ or ‘Chaka Khan thighs’ but today we can all celebrate the gift of the large thighs that we have been given, just because… :)
Hello!!! Long time! I hope everyone is well?
Things have been a bit quiet here but lots has been happening behind the scenes most of which have been documented on my instagram here
But I will try to start a new weekly news roundup for my blog and website. Watch this space!!
So this new painting sort of evolved from an abstract art exercise that developed into a painting about current affairs.
It is called ‘Love in a time of Ebola’ and features acrylic on canvas.. Yes I am now working regularly on canvas!!
The painting sort of just appeared but it started with the eyes.
I don’t know where the Ebola reference came from but it was probably something that I had been reading and thinking about.
The 2 figures sort of look like either space travellers or androids and that meant something to me too.
But art is really about what you see in an image.
This painting is about affection, needs, love, distance, restriction, health, humanity etc etc.

Hello everyone! I hope you are well?
Yesterday I finished another quotes lady!! Whoo! In this painting I wanted to express how often we can look outside ourselves for validation and assurance that everything is ok.
But I think it is true to say that resting in ones self and being true to yourself can offer the best sense of wholeness and security possible.
It can take a lot of work to get to that stage, a lot of people refer to this as ‘The Work’ but I think it is a journey we all need to go on for a more fulfilling life.
Hello everyone! I hope you are well.
I’ve been managing to work on quite a few new paintings and paper projects recently, its so nice to be in the flow of creating again, it took quite a lot of effort to get back on track but hopefully it will be a smooth and interesting ride from here on in.
This painting was inspired by a Life Book 2018 lesson, I love the texture in the painting the curved forms and earth tones. I can’t say i’ve ever made a painting like this before but would like to make more!
Hello, I’ve created a walkthough video of painting my recent picture “Rooted” in acrylics on paper.
The painting represents my heritage of being part Jamaican and part Bajan (Barbados)
